Lot Essay

The rigorous work ethic and unique sense of understanding form and functions, materials and high-skilled craftsmanship were the basis of the long life collaboration between the Zanon brothers and the architect Carlo Scarpa. The design of the present lot was conceived by Scarpa and originally used in the Gipsoteca Canoviana Addition in Possagno in the mid-1950s.
